Echo Best Gas Mileage, Reliable, Roomy!
By family2kids on
Vehicle
2003 Toyota ECHO 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
The best car ever. My wife and our two kids fit in just right. Bought the car with 17K miles in it in 2004, now has 140K miles. Drove from Frankfort KY to Chicago in one tank (38-40 mpg) everytime. Very easy on the wallet, usually pump gas once or twice a month at most ($20-25 bucks/mo). Drove through the worst snowstorms (Nebraska, Illinois) and did well. Carried five adults with trunk full of suitcases to Chicago airport from KY just fine. Able to pass cars or trucks on hwy real easy. VERY ROOMY, more space than Corolla, Camry, Taurus, etc. Father in law 6'4" 300 lbs drove comfortably over 400 miles, that says something :). Toyota is awesome. Odometer easy to see while driving.
Favorite Features
Awesome gas mileage. Roomy even for big guys! Very easy to park, fit in every parking situation. Hit two deers in past two yrs and only damaged front bumpers (<$500 dmg). Fast on highway. Reliable. Much more storage/trunk space than any cars I've seen (5 kids can sleep in the trunk).
Suggested Improvements
Didn't come with cruise control so we asked the dealer to install it. Best decision ever. Power windows/locks would be nice.
